Tomorrow, you’ll remember our names.”
Talking about the film, Anushka also mentioned that Jhulan actually shouldered the fame of Women’s cricket in India and now has paced towards the world champions. She also mentioned that the men’s cricket jesters were used since the team had no provisions for women’s teams.
We all have to thank Jhulan and her teammates for revolutionizing women’s cricket in India. It is her hard work, passion, and undefeated mission to bring attention to women’s cricket that turned the tables for generations to come. As a woman, I was proud to hear Jhulan’s story and honored to share her life with the public and cricket enthusiasts. As a cricket nation, we must give our women cricketers the right to what is theirs. Jhulan’s story is truly a story of misfits in Indian cricket history and the film is our tribute to their spirit,” Anushka concluded with these words.
